Based in large part on letters to and from Dickens, these bring out the darker side of Dickens's personality, although Nicoll is quoted in the prefatory note as saying "There must be reticences. It is not decent or right to tell in print all you know of a man - you may easily misrepresent him by doing so." Includes two essays on Dickens and Edgar Allen Poe. Frontispiece portrait with tissue guard. Laid in is a small bookplate from The Old Curiosity Shop and a certificate that this article was purchased there. xii, 244 pp.

    Condition: Good overall in original olive green cloth with gilt lettering on spine - foxing throughout, most of the edges of the textblock and margins of the pages.
